Project

Ladies Diary Shadow Box

What are you most proud of? This was my first piece of "collage" artwork and I think it worked quite well - she was certainly very pleased with it and it is still on display, long after her birthday has been and gone! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Gather the things you want to include and use a piece of paper the same size of the shadowbox to initially layout your design, without sticking anything down. you can move it around until you are happy with it. I then take a photo on with my phone so that I can remember where I wanted everything to go and then transfer that layout to the shadow box.

You Can Make This

Diane Barnard made Ladies Diary Shadow Box with:

  • 8" x 8"Shadow Box
